Welcome . . . Welcome . . .
To the official new website for the 2017 Stockings For Soldiers community project.
This year marks the 14th consecutive year of our community effort to send personalized Holiday greetings to our brave young men and women in uniform serving their Country half-way around the world.
Thanks to the great generosity of Louis Capano & Sons, the owners of the Branmar Plaza shopping center, our "Stocking Store" will be located at the same Branmar Plaza location that we have used for the past 11 years. We are located to the left of Walgreens at Silverside and Marsh Roads in Wilmington, Delaware.

We are asking volunteers to DROP OFF donations starting Monday, October 2nd through Saturday November 25th, 2017.
Volunteer hours will start the following week on Oct. 9th, 2017. Our doors will open from 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. from Mondays through Thursdays in the evenings only. Over the next eight weeks, we will be personalizing each stocking with the recipient's name, collecting the needed goodies, sorting all the donations, stuffing the stockings with goodies, boxing them and shipping them to troops in the remotest regions of the world. Previously, our boxes have gone to Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Israel, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Kosovo, Romania, Poland, Djibouti, Chad, South Korea and parts unknown.
Last year, over 1000 great volunteers helped us to mail out 1,200 boxes packed with 9,000 homemade, personalized Christmas Stockings that were filled with over 40,000 pounds of goodies. We also made and shipped 1,300 polar fleece blankets and 500 knitted hats for our troops.
THANK YOU, Everyone. See You All in October.
